Get to know D.C. with our daily newsletter

We dive deep on the day’s biggest story and share links to everything you need to know.

In this week’s NEW, REDESIGNED, MORE COLORFUL City Paper, you’ll find:

  • For your Easter Sunday, the Washington City Paper guide to alternative Christian enlightenment, with your guide, Service Industry’s Aaron Leitko.
  • Jason Cherkis on the D.C. Jail’s ongoing problem with not releasing inmates that have been freed. Last week, a federal judge slammed the District for not fixing a chronic problem.
  • In Loose Lips: James Jones does an interview with ex-community services head Merrit Drucker. What he has to say about the supposedly services-friendly Adrian Fenty may surprise you.
  • In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on a secret homebuilt skateboarders’ park tucked into a Shaw warehouse. Until it suddenly closed down last month, it was the center of a remarkable creative scene.
  • In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on a literal shitstorm down at the Big Hunt. And is the end of the Smithsonian Jazz Cafe nigh?
  • In Young & Hungry: Tim Carman on Montsouris, a new bistro in Dupont Circle.
  • The debut of Ask Bob!
  • Plus film, music, lots of theater, books, and more
